Gut Rumbles

too complicated

Blogger has gotten better than it once was, but it still sucks. What's with the log-in and register to leave a comment? I don't do that shit for major newspapers. I REFUSE TO READ any newspaper on-line that expects me to register. I simply will not do it.

Therefore, I don't leave comments on Blogspot pages that give me that same password and sign-in bullshit. It's just not worth the effort.

If you're that afraid of comments, just don't have them.


I think its more of avoiding comment spam.

Just hit Post Anonymously and you don't have to register. I do agree with you, however, there are big issues.

I don't know if it cuts down on spam or not. I don't get spam, but I'm not a big blogger like you. I have a feeling if I was, my spam issues would increase exponentially and blogger would be powerless to help.

For a lot of us, it's basically troll control. I have a TypeKey login, which I don' t consider unreasonable at all. Signing up for a free Blogger login falls in the same category, imho. You only have to do it once, then it only takes a few seconds to sign in when you want to comment on my blog or a lot of others like it. It takes less time than I had to spend filling in the boxes so I could post this, btw.

btw, Boudicca, the ability to leave anonymous comments on a BlogSpot blog is something the blog owner can turn on or off. I turned it off because of trolls. I figure anyone who isn't brave enough to leave a name doesn't have anything to say that's worth wasting my time to read anyway.

Yeah, Bill--- but you won't ever have to fill in the boxes again if you clicked the "Remember info" box.

Yea...what Boudicca said.
I have my "anyone can comment" box checked, but I guess it still asks "anyone" to register, which I agree, is a big pain in the butt.

Bill I haven't had many trolls. I don't have an enormous readership and I don't blog poltiics much. It's more a personal catharsis for me.

I just didn't want my family to have to register and potentially get spammed. So far so good.
